Good News...And Thanks NC!

I got my hair trimmed on Friday (I go about every 3 months)...And my hairdresser told me my hair looked so healthy that I didn't need a trim (that never happens)! I ended up getting just the ends off to give some bounce to my curls...But this made me so happy! Since being on this website I have learned so much about how to take care of my hair, and obviously it shows! And while I am not completely CG I have taken a lot of the CG information and used it. Thanks NC!

    I had the same thing happen after going mod-CG. I was used to going every 5 to 8 weeks (depending on cut etc), but when I went 6 weeks after my first trim with new stylist, she said, nope, didn't need it, so we just did a laminate to refresh color....

    Now, it's been 4.5 months without a trim and hair looks fine. :) I plan to make an appointment to cover grays and do a glaze, and if I need some neatening for shape, let her do that. But I like the length and am loathe to lose it as I'd like to gain about 3 more inches. I think that will be it, perfect, then just maintain that length.

    Gentler cleansing, gentle handling, and good conditioning works.

    That's amazing Mir! If I could go 4.5 months...Wow. I definitely agree with the gentle cleansing, handling, and good conditioning...All things the ladies at NC taught me! Still have a lot to learn and by no means is my hair perfect...But I am having better hair days than before. And my hair is definitley less frizzy. Nervous about the colder months approaching, hoping I don't start back at zero with products...I am thinking I may be able to get away with just a good curl cream with no hold product over it...We will see...
